What Storyboard Likes…

Dapper Boys- When its done right, I am a huge fan of the light beige men’s look.  I am so very team light beige on this one!  Reason 1- The fit, these actually fit the boys!  Sounds silly but I see all to often guys that get clothing and don’t bother to concern themselves with tailoring or even initial cut of the items to start off with.  These boys look as sharp as they do as the clothing, instead of becoming a boxy eye sore, take on the shape & bold look of each wearer!  Reason 2- The Vests.  Loving the choice of vests vs jackets.  Unfortunately its a look that stays mostly south, but I’d love to see some Yankees taking on this dapper, slightly throw back look of vest vs jacket!  Reason 3- Its a small thing, but I see it screwed up all too often, the Tie.  The choice of tie type, size, color AND knot for our groomsmen is superb!!!  The ties are the perfect width for the look, not to skinny, not too fat, juuuuust right.  Whats more, they all tied the same friggin knot.  It might sound unimportant, but this is another element that goes into a very polished & cohesive look & it really pays off here!  Lastly, Reason 4- I am loving Panza’s large knit bow tie, I mean, come on!  Only such a handsome pup could pull off such a statement bow tie!

Pretty Posies- It might seem that I bring up flowers often, but thats just it.  Unfortunately, I see bad ones all too often, so when I see ones that really have honed their craft into art themselves, I am always going to say something.  The choice of blooms & colors alone are divine but its the artistry of WildFlowers Inc. that really created some masterpieces in both the bouquets & boutonniere’s.  Typically I am not the biggest fan of oversized bouquets, however, it seems that WildFlowers can weild their powers for good because to my own surprise, I completely love the size of our bridey’s bouquet.  What makes it work is the actual skill behind the assembly of such a large arraignment,  as well as NOT completely wrapping the stems on the handle.  How so?  Allowing the bottoms of the long green stems to peep out from below offer a counter balance to the top heavy bunch offering a much needed division of weight to the eye.  Gorgeous!

Ties That Bind- I know I know, hum, que?!  There is a binding, at times tie related element to the wedding, that has a certain flair that I love!  I already mentioned the groomsmen’s ties, as well as Panza’s knit bowtie, but there are other tie related elements that really bring this wedding together!  Starting with our brides bouquet, the mix of burlap, twine & lace create a strong yet feminine feel.  The addition of the cameo throws a sweet nod to times past, while the wrap as a whole, kept short, allows the green of life in the stems to bring that fully organic feel.  Next up is a simple touch, but one with big impact.  I am a huge petitioner for gorgeous tablescaping, & napkins are often an after thought.  The choice of light beige is perfection with the rustic palette, while the simple twin tie that binds the napkin, with the initial heart touch, really has a big impact on such a basic table set up.  Last but not least, & yeah its a bit of a stretch, but the light strand work that Rachel’s father put into lighting, tying up the length of the dock with Christmas lights, make for a gorgeous starry night addition!

 

Novella Of The Bride…

We are a laid-back, fun loving, casual couple and don’t take life too seriously! We met on James Island, SC when I was a waitress and John was my customer. His pick up line? “Hey saucy minx, want to have chips and salsa with me?” We had been dating for 6 years at the time of our wedding, and we have a 5 year old 4 legged furry son named Panza.

Pepper Plantation is an equestrian community, and I grew up riding horses. When I first laid eyes on it, I knew it was perfect. John completely agreed. We knew we wanted an outdoor wedding in a space with a casual, but elegant vibe and Pepper Plantatin was the place!  I fell in love with the rustic, vintage, and shabby chic looks, so I sort of combined all 3. I wanted to decorate the space with neutral tones and let the florals be the pop of color. Fabric draped from the rafters and curtained doorways really softened the space along with lots of candlelight. Burlap, chalkboards, mason jars and distressed wood were some other important elements.

I couldn’t have done it without them {my family}! My mother collected all of the beautiful candles that lit the space. She also sewed all of the burlap runners with the help of her friend Mary. My Aunt Debbie baked everything on our amazing dessert table. She really outdid herself! My great neighbor Jackie sewed all of the curtains for the doorways. And last but not least, my wonderful father spent hours wrapping thousands of Christmas lights all the way down the dock.

Bride’s Favorite Moment… “I think it is a tie between our butt-grabbing first kiss and spinning around the dance floor to “She Said Yes” by Mumford & Sons.”
